Spirit Airlines At It Again: Jewish Family Tossed for Toddler Not Wearing a Mask

by | Apr 6, 2021 | Culture

For the third time in a little more than a month, Spirit Airlines was involved in a controversy surrounding COVID restrictions. The most recent incident happened to an Orthodox Jewish family during Passover last weekend on a plane bound from Orlando, Florida, to New York.

The Yeshiva World reported that the family of four was removed by a flight attendant because their two-year-old was eating yogurt on her mother’s lap—and, of course, she wasn’t wearing a mask.

Video footage taken by a passenger shows that, although the family was willing to comply with the mask regulations, the flight attendant was adamant about the family being removed from the plane. The attendant left the area where the family was sitting and informed them that she would “call the police.”

The father told the attendant that the child was a special needs child—and the mother is seven months pregnant—but that they would comply with the rules. The flight attendant, however, did not pay heed to the father’s pleas.

The entire flight was forced to deplane because of the child. An hour later, Yeshiva World reported, the entire flight was allowed to board again, including the child. Ironically, the flight attendant did not reboard.

YWN has published several articles about Spirit Airlines recently.

The website says that “Multiple Orthodox Jews told YWN they were banned from the airline for no reason at all. No reason was ever given.” And, “Just two weeks ago, YWN published a story about Spirit Airlines threw a 4-year-old autistic child, with a doctor’s note, off a flight for ‘no mask.’ The child had a ‘medical note from his physician stating that he’s exempt from wearing masks because whenever he wears a mask he holds his breath or he starts freaking out and he will harm himself.'”
